“Forever Young: A song for Wootton Bassett. Not only has Alan Pettifer done a wonderful job with simple yet poignant lyrics and fantastically moving musical arrangements, but everyone involved should feel proud of this creation. It's difficult to listen to "Forever Young" and not be emotionally moved, proof that such a simple medium as music can step up to the mark when mere words seem inadequate.

“As a founder of 'Mothers Against Knives' and 'It's Your Life' awareness team I approached Alan Pettifer and asked if he would consider composing a song for the victims of crime....Alan agreed. ...the words of Alan's song (The Last Flower) portray in a sense some of the feelings which related to anyone who has lost a loved one through crime.....as a mother of a victim the song has a very special meaning to me....... .......for myself it will always have a deeper meaning which I hold in my heart....eternal thanks to Alan for composing an emotional and beautiful song.
